showPOD presents an art experience with 24/7 exposure: “The Installation Experiment”
Located in 7 storefront exhibition spaces along the 1800 block of S Halsted Street, in the Chicago Arts District (CAD), The Installation Experiment presents the work of seven accomplished Chicago-based artists — Nikki Renee Anderson, Gerda Meyer Bernstein, Barbara Cooper, Chelsea Culp and Ben Foch, Barbara Hashimoto, and Bernard Williams. Ranging in age from 28 – 83, each artist has been recognized locally and internationally through exhibitions, collections, publications, and residencies.
This unique venue is situated in the Chicago Arts District, a neighborhood with a decades-long commitment to serving artists by providing community, support, and spaces to live, work, and exhibit. The showPOD venue was specifically designed to provide a rich public art experience that breaks down the traditional parameters of a gallery or museum.
To provide opportunities for the public to meet and interact with the artists, four evening and two day-long receptions (and performances, events) have been scheduled. Updates and details of events are posted on facebook.com/TheInstallationExperiment.
The Installation Experiment is associated with the 23rd International Sculpture Conference sponsored by the International Sculpture Center (ISC) and is supported by the ISC’s local chapter, Chicago Sculpture International.
